“Perfect hotel in Nairobi”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

Ive been staying at Hotel Troy for one week now with my two friends and this hotel is my favourite hotel so far in Kenya! The rooms are good with big beds. Its safe to stay here,and the people working at the hotel are really nice and helpful. Its close to the giraffe center and the David Sheldrick wildlife trust. I will stay here next time I come to Kenya .

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

Safe, nice rooms, and the bed where amazingly comfortable. I love it here, and it is suitable for families as well as for couples and alone travellers. Good and relaxing atmosphere. The only thing I missed was a better choice of breakfast, all I got was a toast with butter because I dont like eggs. But hey, thats a minor thing to complain about compared to other hotels! I'm very happy for choosing this wonderful hotel.

Excellent, reasonably priced location for local attractions in Karen as well as for the airport (the hotel provides transportation). Very friendly staff, though a waiter who served on us could do with some more training. Tiny rooms, with hardly any room for your suitcases which may make repacking after your safari a wee bit tricky, very basic bathrooms, but quiet enough to sleep well. A nice, small restaurant, a limited menu yet a lovely garden to enjoy your meal. Would recommend it for a single night stay, anything longer might be a bit too long.

In a city that is known to be dangerous and unsafe, Nairobi ( or "Nairobbery" as some people refer to it), it is nice to have a safe and quiet hotel to stay in.We landed in Nairobi airport and was pleased that we were able to get someone to pick us up from the Hotel Troy. While it is not the cheapest place to stay ( and most nice hotels in Nairobi are not cheap), it was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was reasonably good and the staff was friendly. It is close to the Nairobi National Park which is convenient if you want to visit the park. Don't be taken aback by the dirt road en route to the hotel. The numerous gates are all part of the security. I loved the sound of the birds in the morning.

This fairly new property offers comfortable, well appointed rooms and good food. The location is excellent, being near a number of attractions and shopping, yet off the main road, quiet and secure. I was able to arrange transportation to Nairobi National Park and the elephant orphanage through the hotel, as well as an airport drop off. The staff were pleasant and helpful. A couple of minor quibbles - no cable TV in rooms, and the wifi was not very reliable.
